    Coronavirus Update from Ham Radio Outlet

    March 24, 2020

    As you are aware, stores across the country have closed their doors to the public or restricted access to curb-side pickup only. During these times, Ham Radio Outlet has stayed open and conducted normal business in areas that do not have federal, state, or city mandates.

    States such as Ohio, Louisiana, Delaware, California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Connecticut, Michigan, and others have 'Shelter-In-Place' orders. Other states are very soon to follow.

    This morning the Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, spoke to the nation and indicated the following:

    "I want America to understand, this week it's going to get bad! The disease is spreading because many people — especially young people — are not abiding by guidance to stay at home and practice social distancing. Right now, there are not enough people out there who are taking this seriously."

    In order to protect the staff and customers of Ham Radio Outlet and to continue to operate in a safe manner, HRO will be closed to walk-in traffic at all locations effective 3/25/2020. Stores will continue to take phone calls, online orders, and ship products so long as we are legally allowed to operate. We encourage curb-side pickup where you may call in an order and then call into the store when you arrive at the facility. One of our staff will bring out the product to your vehicle.

    Ham Radio Outlet will continue to monitor local, state, and national guidelines and adjust our store policies accordingly. HRO may change to something more restrictive in the near future. Our sincere hope is that we can return to business as usual as soon as possible, but until then we want to ensure the safety of both our staff and you, our customer.

    For up-to-date information of any stores' status, please visit our Coronavirus Status Page on our website located at: https://www.hamradio.com/coronavirus

    We wish you all safety and health.

    These are strange times for all of us indeed. I know all of us HAMS appreciate your working within the guidelines to still provide us with equipment that can keep us from losing our minds while feeling like a teenager grounded for staying out too late! Thanks!

    Are you blaming HRO because your post office is shut down?

    If so, how would that be HRO's fault?

    OK thanks - you didn't say that in your first post, and it therefore made zero sense.

    Well , they do an invoice with tracking method before it ships.

    HRO sometimes wants to use Surepost and this doesn't work for me, so I have caught that a few times and a call to them gets it redone with a different carrier.

    As long as you call them before it goes out they can change it.
